A former residence of Hartford poet Wallace Stevens, this elegant turn of the century home combines history and old world craftsmanship with modern conveniences. A large open kitchen features high end appliances, granite and mahogany counters, center island cooking area, baking station, and a butler’s pantry. Pocket doors, built in cabinets and window seats, original oak floors and imported crown molding and mantels complete the period details. Carved fireplaces grace the master suite, formal living room, and dining room. The partially finished basement has plenty of space for a workshop. The spacious front porch adds charm for relaxing and entertaining. There is plenty of room for an au-pair or in-law suite. Located walking distance to Elizabeth Park and its famous Rose Gardens, schools, and West Hartford Center with its restaurants and shops. Minutes from Hartford businesses and museums. Traveling to New York, Boston, and elsewhere is easy with access to I-84, Bradley International Airport, and Union Station. A perfect balance of enjoying all that West Hartford and Hartford have to offer while having the privacy and peace of a beautiful home and yard.
